Chad Everett was selected to be the new Principal at Bluff City High School, one of five schools that Green Dot Public Schools Tennessee operates in Memphis.

He was selected through a competitive process that included input from the community of stakeholders at Bluff City School including teachers, staff, and regional leadership. Mr. Everett  began his new role with BCHS in June 2022. 

Mr. Everett started his career in education as a classroom technology specialist for DeSoto County Schools in Mississippi.

His experience as an educator and academic leadership is a great fit for us.” said Jocquell Rodgers, Executive Director of Green Dot Public Schools Tennessee. “We are eager to see Mr. Everett’s dedication to student success come to life at Bluff City High.”
